Sheep farming has become more attractive in recent years because sheep demand little other than pasture. The sheep is one of the most economic animals for exploiting grass leys used as break crops in cereal farming, it requires less capital expenditure than other forms of livestock and does not need large quantities of expensive concentrates. This practical textbook provides all the basic information required by students of agriculture; it is also suitable for farmers who are interested in setting up in sheep production. Practical aspects of anatomy, physiology and nutrition are linked directly to husbandry. The book emphasizes the importance of flexibility and adapting systems to suit circumstances rather than imposing a rigid set of rules, and animal health is treated as an integral part of husbandry with emphasis on disease prevention.
